Eryka, We aren't using any family support although it's there if needed. We've been away from our former homeport dock for six years and we have had one call for jury duty, but a call to the clerk of the court identifying our distant location was a quick release. We do rent a car on occasion and cary non-owners liability through State Farm. Not many agents will write a non-owners policy, so it might be best to remain with whoever has been your long term agent. We use the collision coverage that is available through the rental with our credit card company. Our prescription drugs are purchased at three month intervals. I believe most mail order prescription services fill for three months. We're using St. Brendan's Isle as our address out of Green Cove Springs, Fl. This is particularly convenient for us as it's in the county of our long term residence and pre-existing voting precinct; however, they will establish your legal residence through their service. We are cruising Maine to the Carribean, but we find it best to use Fed-Ex outside the US. We typically sail faster than the Bahamian mail. We have adapted to recieving our mail once or twice a month. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
